While it was sort of hard to find, the sign is a small plaque on the wall, it was well worth the effort. The staff were all very cordial and helpful with questions and suggestions. We had the tasting menu and enjoyed everything except the octopus. Wonderful experience.

I chose this restaurant as a celebration for my husbands birthday. 10-course chef's menu with wine pairing. Our waitress acted annoyed by us from the minute we walked in. The lights were so bright in the place, it killed the entire mood.

Our waitress didn't explain any of the dishes, nor did she explain any of the wines paired with each dish. Just placed everything down and told us what it was (thanks, we can read that off the menu).

The sommelier was "busy taking inventory" for the 3.5 hours we were there and didn't once come out to talk to us about the wines that were so "carefully curated for us."

Food was bland and uninspired. Most dishes were drowning in sauce that added nothing to the overall flavor.

For $200 per person, I expected SO much more. Such a waste of time and money.

Blood and Sand brings your dining experience to a new level. The chef showcases plates that are unmatched by others in the area. The wait staff is second to none and the mixologist will have you tasting drinks that pair perfectly with your food all night. I am so proud to be part of this community.

Excellent dinner with my wife last Friday night. We did the 5-course tasting menu and it was the perfect amount of food. I really enjoyed getting different things and tasting each other's plates. Our server was a true pro, and the pacing of dinner could not have been better. Oh, and the cocktails! Covid has made me appreciate a proper cocktail like never before, and I will say, these were *proper* cocktails. Truly excellent all around. I must say this place is expensive, but if you're reading this, you already know that.

By far the best dinner I’ve ever had. The staff was incredible and friendly. The plates were tight. The food well seasoned and inspired. The cocktails were incredible, very inventive flavors. My only complaint was that the music that was playing while we were there wasn’t right for the mood of the restaurant. It sounded like a 2010’s top 20 pop playlist. I could have done with something a bit softer or romantic.

It was a very underwhelming experience. The food we tried was bland, over cooked and not at all what I expected. The octopus was SO bitter and rubbery that no one in our group could eat it. The drinks were pretty good as well as the ambiance. However, as the other reviews suggest the same - the services is bad. The waitress did not know where the oysters were from, she did not know what part of the kangaroo that tartare was or where it’s from. We were constantly looking for either a plate or knives/forks. If you’re going to consider to be such a special restaurant, at least train your staff adequately. Not only were they not knowledgeable, but not pleasant. Will not return.

Outstanding food and excellent service.
I had the 5 course tasting menu. The Pierogi with potatoes, truffles and onions were delicious. Next time I might try the Raclette if it's still offered. Next came a French onion soup, one of the better ones I've had. The thick layer of cheese was listed as being a Comté, but tasted like something milder. The third course was octopus in an unusual African "Mbongo"sauce. The flavors were outstanding, but the octopus segment was somewhat rubbery, which really shouldn't be the case. Most exceptional was the striped bass, perfectly cooked and served in a shellfish broth which was so tasty that I had to ask for a spoon in order to avoid wasting it! Beingnets rounded up a very satisfying dinner.
